We can hardly believe it’s already the last week in May, but that means things are starting to get very exciting around here. May always brings more weddings, more pictures, more creative brides, and lots more fun!

So, what trends can we expect to see for the next few months at our Charlotte Wedding Venue? Well the good thing is that this year’s trends are focusing on couples who want a celebration that is uniquely them. 2016 Wedding Trends are centered around creative ideas that aren’t about breaking the bank and letting couples’ love shine! During the 2015 wedding season we’ve already seen some of the top trends coming to life at Separk Mansion, but we can’t wait to see these trends further!

 #1- Dramatic Necklines

Whether you are crushing on plunging necklines or are obsessing over intricate cut-outs, then a dramatic neckline is a must-have look for any fashion- forward bride. We loved this look during our Blush Wedding Inspiration {Styled Shoot with Love Shutter} in January.

#2- Marsala

Move aside blush pink because this dreamy merlot hue is about to spice up all wedding palettes. We absolutely love the idea of pairing Pantone’s color of the year, Marsala with neutrals or for a richer palette, try including jewel tones. We loved all the details from our styled shoot with this color, check out our Marsala  Color Inspiration blog post.

#3- Family Style Dinners

f you love the long-table look then this next idea is a match made in wedding heaven! Serving your reception feast family style also helps engage in conversation. We loved this look at Martha and Matthew’s Garden wedding here at Separk Mansion.

#4- Mixed Metallics

Everything from rose gold to copper and every gorgeous metallic in between has become one of our latest design crushes. What we adore most about these palettes is how versatile they are for various seasons, with rose gold in abundance for a springtime bash, to a copper-infused autumn celebration to a silver wonderland perfect for the winter season. Our other favorite thing is that, with our glowing chandeliers and natural light coming from our large original windows, these hues look absolutely STUNNING at our venue. Whether you wish to infuse this trend into your bouquet, wedding cake or even wedding-day fashion, this look is pure gold (no pun intended) at Separk Mansion.


When it comes to wedding design, the skies the limit. Literally. Hanging and suspended wedding decor is one of our favorite wedding trends because what’s more magical than saying your vows under a canopy of flowers or feasting on a decadent meal underneath suspended florals? This can be easily done in our formal garden wedding area by draping florals over our pergola, but we loved how Flowers by Lingky was able to bring florals to new heights in our Grand ballroom at Separk Mansion.
